I Know You’ll Get To Like It If You Give It A Chance Now

Been really feeling the leopard print challenge this week, surprise noone around me has commented, “hey – you are wearing leopard print again.” Proof again as to why I need to keep a style blog if I want anyone to give a hoot what I am wearing. I got these sheer footless tights on ebay, not they are much different from other tights but its my segway into what I want to talk about next…… I haven’t shopped on ebay in months! In fact, I don’t even remember my password anymore. It’s all because of a little site called Etsy. I remember when I first logged into Etsy I found it very confusing and overpriced but now I know how to search for deals and the ability to purchase immediately is much easier than the last minute bidding panic of ebay.

Do you still shop on ebay?

    I still do but it always always leaves me so frantic and nervous, I’m watching a bid thats going to end soon and I think Im going to have a heart attack!

    this outfit is great! i love the combo of the demure floral dress with the more daring leopard jacket.

    and as for ebay, i still like to browse there, but end up buying much more on etsy.

    I don’t really shop on ebay anymore but I’ve also cut back on Etsy purchases – I kept finding that the fit was off when I shopped online for clothing. I will buy shoes online if I know the brand well (like Steve Madden)or if I’m willing to take a chance.

    I love it when people mix and match patterns and colors! I’m too chicken to do that myself though. I’m usually in black (with the only other color – blue denim)

    – nice change to pix on the click-link to the eyeline – I almost missed it!

    I know exactly how it is with people not noticing just how darn good you look on any given day. If I ever get a compliment from one of my coworkers my jaw drops to the floor.

    I still get a bit overwhelmed by etsy, and with eBay, I might ignore it for 10 months, then suddenly bid on five auctions at once. I do hate the stress of eBay though, the heart palipatations during those last seconds…

    I’ve never shopped on ebay. It never appealed to me. It’s like gambling or playing video games: stressful. I don’t buy vintage clothing online. I almost bought a Blythe doll on ebay once, but the boy was afraid of it, so I passed.

    Love that leopard jacket. Never shopped at Ebay, just because I don’t trust it. Idk who to trust.

    Love the leopard with the retro florals! I have never bought anything on eBay. I sometimes browse through what they have, but have never bid on anything. I find it too confusing somehow. I am definitely an Etsy girl. 🙂

  11. Hannele says:

    I love the idea of mixing floral and leopard, I would try an daintier all-over floral though. I’ve been contemplating wearing my floral tights with leopard pumps…

    OH HEY, this outfit is gorg!
    And coinky-dink, today I signed up for Etsy—and found my future prom dress!
